The President is further urging all political leaders, traditional authorities, and religious leaders, personnel from the security services, workers, students and other recognized bodies to mobilize their members to participate fully in this maiden activity.
A statement from the Flagstaff House said, “1st of November 2014 is a significant milestone as it is the first Saturday of November and marks the inception of Ghana’s National Sanitation Day. On this day, starting from this Saturday, it is expected that we will all, as Ghanaians, step out in our numbers, mobilise ourselves to clean our communities and neighbourhoods for a clean and secure living.”
“We need to work together, as one unified community of people to ensure the sustainable cleaning of our environs and help make Ghana cleaner and safer,” the statement said.
President Mahama further expressed his appreciation to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, our traditional leaders, development partners, religious leaders and the media for making the National Sanitation Day possible.
